OSU softball splits with Arkansas

STILLWATER — Cowgirl shortstop Gessenia DeLaCruz had five RBIs in two games, including a three-run home run in the nightcap, as Oklahoma State's softball team split a doubleheader with the Arkansas Razorbacks, falling 8-5 in game one before winning the second, 6-1.

Junior pitcher Simone Freeman allowed just one run on two hits in the second game, going the distance and picking up her second win of the fall. The Australia native struck out five while walking two.

OSU scored an unearned run in the bottom of the second when Chelsea Ross reached on an error by Arkansas pitcher Kelly Young. Shannon Kaufman scored from third on the play, giving the Cowgirls a 1-0 lead.

Oklahoma State added a run in the second when DeLaCruz led off with an infield single and, two outs later, scored on a double to the wall off the bat of Ari Morrison.

After back-to-back singles by freshmen Tiffany Mikkelson and Chelsea Ross to lead off the third, DeLaCruz hit her second home run of the fall down the right-field line, giving OSU a 5-0 lead. The Razorbacks scored their lone run in the fourth on an RBI groundout, and the Cowgirls added another run in the fifth when senior Tamara Brown scored on a single by Kaufman.

In the first game of the day, Oklahoma State scored three unearned runs in the bottom of the second, two on a double by DeLaCruz. UA's Jayme Gee led off the third with a solo homer, but the Cowgirls responded, scoring another unearned run on a single by Stephanie Brewer, a transfer from Arkansas.

The Razorbacks took a 5-4 lead in the top of the fourth, two on a single by Chloe Oprzedek and two more on a home run by Amanda Summerford. A bases-loaded fielder's choice put UA ahead 6-4 in the fifth, but OSU cut the lead in half on an RBI double by Brewer. However, a two-run homer by Arkansas' Devon Wallace gave the Razorbacks the win.

Oklahoma State (4-1) will host Eastern Oklahoma State in a 10-inning game on Tuesday starting at 6 p.m. at the Cowgirl Softball Complex.
